Eclipse Plug-in Developer Guide

Installation Dialog Pages

Identifier:
org.eclipse.ui.installationPages

Since:
3.5

Description:

The Eclipse UI provides an AboutDialog that can be branded and reused by client product plugins. This dialog typically shows the product splash image and other descriptive information about the product. The about dialog includes a button that allows the user to launch a secondary dialog, the Installation Details dialog.

The purpose of this extension point is to allow plug-ins to add pages to the installation details dialog. When the installation details dialog is opened, the pages contributed in this way will be added to the dialog box. These pages are used to supply additional detail about the product configuration.

This is an experimental extension point for an extensible about dialog. It is not ready for production and is included at this time only for evaluation by downstream clients. Use at your own risk.

Examples:
The following is an example installation page:


   <extension point=
"org.eclipse.ui.installationPages"
> 
       <page
            name=
"XYZ Info"

            class=
"org.eclipse.ui.internal.XYZInstallInfoPage"

            id=
"org.eclipse.ui.internal.xyz>
       </page>
    </extension>

API Information:
The value of the attribute class must represent a fully qualified name of a class that is a concrete subclass of org.eclipse.ui.about.InstallationPage.

Supplied Implementation:
The Workbench uses this extension point to provide the following pages in the installation details dialog:
  • Plug-ins: A list of all of the plug-ins in the running the system, including details about each plug-in.
  • Configuration: The configuration information contributed via the org.eclipse.ui.systemSummarySections extension.
